WEST PALM BEACH, FL (Thursday, January 5 , 2012) – Recognized business and community leader William Berger, Esq., who serves as senior shareholder and litigation group co-chair for Greenspoon Marder, as well as managing shareholder of the firm’s Palm Beach County law offices, has been reappointed by Governor Rick Scott to the District Board of Trustees of Palm Beach State College. Berger’s term, which was effective Dec. 22, 2011, will run through May 31, 2015.
The purpose of the district board of trustees is to establish policies in alignment with the college’s mission and in accordance with Florida Statutes and the Florida Department of Education Rules. As chairperson, Berger’s main role will be to serve as the board advisor to Dr. Dennis Gallon, president of Palm Beach State College.
Berger had previously been appointed as trustee of the college by Governor Charlie Crist in August 2007 and served as vice chairman for a year, before being selected by his peers to serve as chairman in 2010. As a Florida resident for 37 years and Palm Beach county resident for 23 years, Berger will bring to the position his extensive experience and knowledge of the community and college.
“It’s an honor to be serving on the board of such a reputable institution as Palm Beach State College,” said Berger. “Our goal is to continue to make Palm Beach State College the institute of first choice in the county.”
Berger currently heads up business development for Greenspoon Marder and is credited for much of the firm’s growth over the last decade. In fact, Greenspoon Marder is one of very few firms which has continued to grow and prosper during the economic downturn. It currently has ten offices in Florida, nearly 140 attorneys, 400 staff and more than 40 different practice areas.
